Does anyone run this post that has pictures of their bike with it? Or anyone else's bike for that matter.

I was thinking of buying it for Christmas and would like to see what it looks like on a bike.

Thanks

It's like a pivotal. No joke you can't tell the difference by looking at it on a bike.


You can cut the seat clamp area off your frame (I suggest don't, in case you sell the frame or change your mind...)


Outside of that it works really well, I have had mine for over a year now, and haven't had any real issues. Hasn't really moved much more than a normal seatpost/clamp. I have it about 2-3 inches up now too.

Really? You're that much of a weight weenie? It's like half an ounce...

I bet you run carbon steer tube spacers too...saving all 5 grams each...

I don't really care about weight too much and can't afford it/don't want to waste money on making my bike half a gram lighter.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

but if you kinda go all out with ti cranks bolts, axle there will be a tad difference

And I have been riding for 10+. How long you have been riding has nothing to do with it. A set of ti bolts won't shave more than maybe 1-2 ounces OVERALL, which is barely enough to notice, especially when you factor in that Ti is much more brittle than aluminum or Chromoly, meaning it will be more likely to snap. To me, not worth it at all, I will just continue to ride my bike as is, and if I feel it is too heavy (which it is not) I will lift weights, or keep riding to balance it out.

I have better things to spend my money on, but hey, that's all you if you want to replace that bolt with Ti.

Well if one day I can afford to upgrade my shit to Ti, I'll do that. But for now, I'll just stick with Crmo.
